The film is a period drama and based in the 1950s after Independence. The film is a tribute to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi. January 30 will be Gandhi ji's 150th death anniversary.” 

She adds, “The film will portray the ideology of Mahatma Gandhi. He has taught us how one can win people's heart with non-violence. My character Sudha is extremely positive and showers a lot of love and compassion to whoever she meets. It’s an out and out positive character."

In fact, the actress sports a very interesting look for the film. “The look is inspired from the Independence era. I wore a lot of cotton sarees. For my reference I saw a lot of old films specially those which have Meena Kumari, Madhubala and Vyajayantimala, so I could adopt the body language. The film is presented in an urban setup so today's audience can relate to it,” she says.

The movie also stars actor Jatin Goswami who plays Samiksha's husband. He was last seen in the critically-acclaimed film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. Hey Ram Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya will tentatively release on February 23.
